We always take our kitty Reno with us on the longer trips and we have one of those cat carriers that attaches to wheels so that you can stroll them around while you are parked. We put him in the carrier and attach it with bungi cords so that in case of sudden stop he does not fly forward. The carrier is mesh and he is in the space between the two front seats so he is happy being near us and most of the time naps.
Any better/other ways you are doing it?

Ours is free to roam. She usually sleeps on the bed most of the time, but will occasionally come up front and sit on the dash or on a chair.

While you are driving? That sounds interesting ... might try it.

Hello.

Up until our last trip (just last week), our two cats were free to roam the coach. However, one of them found a hiding place behind the dashboard that we did not want her to explore ... what a job it was to get her out of there!

So from now on (while we are moving) they will be in their cat carriers. We will let them out at our rest stop areas (just in the coach, of course) to eat, walk around, etc. When we are parked I'm going to have to see what I can do to close up that space by the footfeet where she enters unders the dash. Leave it to a cat to find those tiny places. Our Ragdoll (big girl) never tries to hide, so she is our really great traveler.

I'm in Iowa and it's COLD here ... looks like an early and long winter. YIKES!

My cats tried to get in behind the dash too!  We blocked it off with some  packing material we had with us and later put a small foot stool in there to block access.  My Brady loves to go under the kitchen sink!  If he can find an opening he has to check it out ; )

Rocket, our 11 year old domestic shorthair loves to go camping. He usually lies on the coach floor next to my seat while I am driving. When we get to a CG he insists on us taking him for a walk every evening. He wears a harness and does not mind having a long light weight leash. Just let's go!! (and HE must lead!!) He really enjoys camping and will stand by his harness to tell us he wants out. If the door is open he just stands there and waits for one of us to put his "clothes" on him. He is also extremely vocal and is, or seems to be, talking to us all the time. Sometimes drives us nuts!!

We have two domestic shorthairs and they are free to roam. Mostly they like to crawl under the covers and sleep, but sometimes the come up and lay on the dashboard (I have a special rug there) and help us navigate.
